I was watching this Tableau architecture video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v8_iLBdGlm4 and Rush was explaining that the data engine at any given point of time cannot have more than two processes.
I have a Tableau server with more than 20 users and most of my dashboards are extract heavy. Will the two processes of data engine handle all the users requirements? Is it better to have live connection in this case? Please advice and also can you please explain the working of Data engine in detail?
In my experience, the benefit of using extracts will outweigh the benefit of using a live connection. However, I have moved this post to the Server Admin section of the Community where other users can give you a more in-depth answer.
